Lies, Lies, and More Damn Lies

For the last two weeks Nathan Fletcher has been telling anyone who will listen two things: (1) He’s ‘already raised’ 300k and (2) The Labor Council will endorse him. Why? It was a concerted propaganda move to intimidate other Democrats out of the race. That has obviously failed, now that Councilman David Alvarez is in, with an overwhelming Labor Council …

The Fletcher Poll is Fletcher Propaganda

Mr. Murphy Mr. Murphy Leave a Comment

When I woke up this morning I read the leaked Fletcher poll. This is not the kind of typical campaign poll we all see.
